I have been working at Progressive Business Publications full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great flexibility with work schedule. Accommodating any and all family need and emergencies. Provide an excellent work environment and a casual atmosphere.

Cons

Pay is not great but the benefits are excellent. Lack of communication on a few issues and the HR department could be better involved with identifying poor performers and working on action plans to improve their performance or moving on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to be proactive with succession planning

    Company that doesn't follow their own "proclaimed" values. Run away as fast as you can.

    Pros

    Not many. But if you are willing to be a follower and do what they say you will get by. You need to be someone who doesn't think for themselves.

    Cons

    Search the web for "progressive business publications" and look at the search results.
    You will see a great deal of negative publicity about the company exploiting people at businesses across the country. This is reason enough not to work there.

    On top of that, consider the people who work there for a long time and are comfortable with this fact. They obviously are either stuck there or don't find anything wrong with misleading or taking advantage of people. Why would you want to work with them?

    In addition to these facts, my experience at the company was very in line with the negative facts that come up in the search results. People there didn't really care about the customers, nor did management really care about employees. The turnover rate of employees was very high and customers were always calling into complain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not think advice will help this management team.
